“From July 20 [2012] about 60 cable television operators disconnected
the TVi Channel… There is a lot of evidence that this is happening on
the direct order of the national council or its Chairman Manzhosov
[Volodymyr Manzhosov],” Kniazhytsky said at the sitting of the Verkhovna
Rada Committee on Freedom of Speech and Information on Wednesday.

According to him, “it’s evident that this was done in order to destroy our channel.”

“As a result of these disconnections, the rating of our channel has
fallen by almost three times…and it means that we can’t fulfill our
duties, including to the subjects of the political process. We have
agreements with various political parties…In fact, representatives of
the national council have put pressure on the cable operators,
threatening them with the withdrawal of their licenses,” the channel’s
director added.
